I ran into the same issue a few years ago, solved it, forgot the solution a=
nd
then rediscovered it this evening. I think my solution is actually a little
simpler and easier to follow than the arrays proposed by a couple of other
list members, so I thought I'd pass it on. I'm not subscribed to the list, =
but
it looks like non-subscribers can still post (if this gets bounced, I guess=
I
will know I was incorrect in that assessment!) ...

$RSYNC -e "$SSH" $HOST:$SRCDIR $MIRROR:$DSTDIR

I'm sure you've probably solved it and moved on, but I wanted to pass this =
on
anyway in the hopes that it's useful (or at least interesting ). You can
wrap other problematic arguments in the same way as $SSH above and pass them
as well. As of version 3.0.0, rsync supports a -s flag that supposedly
mitigates some or all of these kinds of issues by bypassing remote shell
interpolation altogether. Dunno how well it works, because I haven't had a
chance to test with 3.x yet.

cheers,
